Holland simply doesn't learn. Wish I could say I don't believe it, but completely expected from the guy who ran after Modano, Sammy, and Jagr.
40 years old and will have to adopt to a brand new system and style of play
All thats left now is Clearly and that will be our free agent splash.

While you conveniently disregard the signings of 35+ year old players that HAVE worked out for us...

I don't like the deal because it's following the same old formula.  Eventually, Holland has to take a risk, do something a little bold, go out on a limb.  The Wings were forced to this season, and look how it turned out.  I had hoped it would lead to a change in philosophy, but obviously it hasn't.  Our "kids" are in their mid-20's for crying out loud.  You can't keep these guys in GR forever.  They're either NHL quality or their not.

This is only a bad deal if we resign Flip, Cleary, Brunner, and keep Samuelsson. If we get rid of those 4, then this works.

So what he gets downgraded to the # 6 scorer?

 

You claim that there are youngsters lined up to take his spot, but all of them are unproven, even Nyquist and Tatar did well in less than a half season.

 

None of the youngsters we (myself included) are all excited about have played a full season in the NHL, plus they are all headed for the dreaded Sophomore slump.

 

And I am looking at his stats, he has scored 20 goals every year except for a 47 and a 57 game seasons.

He has been a minus twice in his entire career.

 

In his last full season (2011-2012) he put up 27 32 with a plus 16.

 

So my question to you would be who's stats are you looking at that make you think a youngster should take his spot?

 

Which was your original statement!

The ones showing his scoring has dropped over 30% in 2 years.

The questions that need answering are: Would Alfie had been the player to get us to the cup this last season, and if not, who or what would get the Wings back into the SCF?

Playing on Pavel Datsyuk's line, he obviously created some space for Pavel. That's something we're going to have to monitor," said Ken Holland.


Ugh.

Same people crying like always. 

 

I like it. It;s only for 1 year for a player that can still score and as we have seen in the past older player seem to thrive with the wings org. Can't wait to see him play with Dats and Z.

If Alfredsson is the start of a big summer, it's going to be a good one.  If he is the end, next season is going to be every bit of the slog last was.

I don't mind Alfredsson but we need Brunner and another big name signed...feel free to lose the dead wood at anytime.

$3.5 requires 75 points, seriously? It's not a sure thing that even Pav or Z will get 75 points, and they make $6m+

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

5.5 million total for a guy who was on pace for 45 points last season. That sounds like Filppula music.

People need to chill and remember its a one year deal... Overpayment is preferable to having unused cap space sitting for a year.
